Explore the politics of secession and reunion at the L.Q.C. Lamar House Museum in Oxford, Mississippi.
The L.Q.C. Lamar House is a remarkable place. Its meticulous restoration has revealed a handsome, though modest, Greek Revival structure worthy of preservation. It was home to Lucius Lamar while he reflected on defeat and resolved to work for reconciliation between North and South. As Oxford, Mississippi rose from the ashes, Lamar prepared to become a statesman in this house. Later, the house was Senator Lamar’s retreat from the demands of Washington.
L. Q. C. Lamar's Career:
||U.S. Congressman before and after the Civil War
||Secretary of the Interior under Grover Cleveland
||U.S. Supreme Court Justice
- “My Countrymen! Know one another, and you will love one another!”
–Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar, April 27, 1874, United States House of Representatives
The mission of the L.Q.C. Lamar House is to interpret the life and career of the distinguished 19th Century statesman L.Q.C. Lamar within the context of his times and to encourage the ideal of statesmanship in the 21st century.
